AKA Photobiomodulation or Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
Hillary Heidelberg AP is the only local acupuncturist who has been certified and trained in photobiomodulation (known colloquially as acu-laser therapy).
Photobiomodulation is a painless therapy that uses low-level lasers to promote healing and release endorphins. The light source is placed in contact with the skin at specific acupuncture points, allowing the photon energy to penetrate tissue, where it interacts with various intracellular biomolecules to restore normal cell function and enhance the body’s healing process. The photons of light stimulate ATP production, and accelerate the healing process (very useful for injuries or pain). Cortisol and endorphin production combat stress. The entire process results in the reduction or elimination of symptoms, including pain, and enhances the body’s immune system response.
In acu-laser therapy, traditionally no needles are used. However, it can be performed in combination with acupuncture when done by an acupuncture physician like Hillary. In the case of smoking cessation, ear acupuncture points and body points are used to release endorphins and increase cortisol production. Multiple treatments are usually needed for healing, and Hillary offers discounted photobiomodulation packages, as well as acupuncture/photobiomodulation packages.
